Leicester are lining up a swoop for Manchester City youngster Ryan McGivern, skysports.com understands.
The Championship new boys are hopeful of striking a loan deal for McGivern ahead of the new season.
McGivern is thought to have been recommended to Foxes boss Nigel Pearson and he is ready to take him to the Walkers Stadium.
The 19-year-old is highly regarded at Eastlands and he has already won six caps for Northern Ireland.
McGivern enjoyed a successful loan spell at Morecambe last season and City are thought to be keen on loaning him out again so that he can continue his development.
